Stanley Dale Melton, 62 of Hurst, Texas, went to be with his Lord and Savior on April 3, 2023 with his devoted wife by his side. Stan was born to Bobbie Louise and Bill D. Melton on December 1, 1960 in Fort Worth, Texas. He spent his formative years growing up in Hurst and graduated from L.D. Bell High School in 1979. Growing up Stan played baseball and other sports but his passion from an early age was music. He was a lead singer and guitarist. His first band, Northern Exit, played at Rose Park, special events, and Mansfield’s hometown celebration. His band, Back in Time, played at Farr Best Theater and other special events.

Stan moved to Mansfield to start his family. He was an adoring father and later grandfather; a devoted son and grandson; and a wonderful Husband.

He spent many years impacting people through mentorship at his church and church camp.
